Point Clouds


POINTCLOUD "data_file_name"

Generates a point cloud in the 3D model. A point cloud is a set of 3D points with color and other possible metadata stored per each point.

data_file_name: the name of the loaded library part containing the point cloud data. Must be a string expression.

Point clouds are not displayed by the Internal 3D Engine. The 2D is projected, using cutplanes to filter the unnecessary points.

Note: this command and function is inactive in ARCHICAD STAR(T) Edition.
